  • Browse through what is popular (especially in the Outdoor Living category)! This is a great feature Pinterest has available! You can get a look into what users are attracted to and want to see by this feed. Use the popular items to brainstorm on your own product or services. Do you have any photos of projects that are truly one of a kind and unique? Do you have any pins that relate to the pins trending such as design, architecture, etc.?
  • Engage with others! Don’t just post onto your own boards and never interact with users. It won’t work out! Liking and engaging with others will create brand awareness and will also help you when you post interesting content onto your page.
